WNY PRISM is hiring for its Watercraft Inspection Boat Steward Program! We are currently accepting applications for Boat Stewards/Environmental Educators (16) and Lead Stewards (2). Job sites will be located throughout the WNY PRISM region. Please see the job posting for additional details.
Boat Stewards/Environmental Educators will interact daily with the public at boat launches. Stewards will perform voluntary boat inspections to remove visible aquatic plants and animals from all types of watercraft. Removal of aquatic plants and animals will help prevent the transport and spread of aquatic invasive species. Stewards will also be responsible for public education and distribution of educational materials. Boat stewards will have the opportunity to assist with invasive species removal projects. Projects may include early detection/rapid response efforts, or control projects to reduce established populations of both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species. Stewards will be assigned to a single launch, however coverage needs may require occasional travel to assist at other launches. Stewards will receive a mandatory two-day training prior to beginning work at their assigned sites.
Lead Boat Stewards will assist the Program Manager with training, scheduling and Boat Steward supervision for the Watercraft Inspection Program, in addition to assuming the responsibilities of a Boat Steward/Environmental Educator.
